On the front cover of the 1906 Farmer Seed & Nursery catalog, an industrious farmer is shown sowing seeds in his field. Presumably these were seeds purchased from this catalog. Sheep peacefully graze in the background and the entire scene is framed with a wheat, oat, and clover border. Farmer Seed & Nursery originated in Faribault, MN in 1888. Andersen Horticultural Library hosts a collection of vintage Farmer Seed & Nursery catalogs.
